Actually that is pretty close.<quoted text>
No kidding! I had no idea.
Does it follow the logic of myth that Yahweh then had a son who's supposed to be a deity of peace?
Did Yahweh have a son b/c he wanted to start a new chapter in his life? You know, take care of a kid, prevent him from having sex, and hopefully watch him tortured to death at the hands of soldiers, that kind of thing.
A common theme in mythology is that of the son vs father.
Most recently the motif was used to great effect in Star Wars.
The Ashera/Oedipal theme was lost with the Hebrew transition into monotheism and devaluation of all things feminine.
